Crafty Intentions CROCHET PATTERN Butterfly (with FOUR Wing Styles!) (printable PDF-file / 66 pages)

Developed by Megan Lapp aka Crafty Intentions, this pattern is for a Butterfly!! This pattern is written in U.S. terminology.

This Butterfly pattern comes with instructions for a realistic butterfly body, and FOUR individual styles of butterfly wings! These butterflies are ready to flutter into your home and sit patiently wherever you put them. This pattern features stunning wing styles ranging from extremely simple to textured and complex and clear step by step instruction with a lot of row-by-row photos. The gauge is not crucial to the pattern as long as the stitches are tight enough to hold stuffing..

This pattern is 66 pages long. The last 16 pages of the PDF are a text-only printer-friendly version of the pattern. To conserve on printer ink, you can selectively print these pages. However, I strongly recommend you still refer to the photographic illustrations throughout the pattern if you have any questions.

This pattern is available in English, Spanish, German, French, and Dutch.
